CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for website hosting servers. It is one of the many Linux distributions available, yet what distinguishes it from the rest is its long-term support, which ensures that you'll always have a reliable and risk-free OS. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for 10 years, which is much longer than with almost every other OS in existence. CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, so in case you encounter any problem or have some questions, you can instantly get the info that you need. CentOS is considered to be one of the best server Operating Systems, due to the fact that it is very stable and protected, that makes it really reliable even when you host private info. Since it is open-source, you'll be able to modify any part of it and customize it according to your needs, not to mention that the overall cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, because you won't have to pay license fees of any sort.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is offered with every single VPS server that we offer and you'll be able to select it through the order process from among several other Operating Systems. Determined by the software that you would like to set up and run, you'll be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be all set shortly after that. CentOS supports all three website hosting Control Panels that we provide - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This enables you to choose if you wish to employ the server for your very own web sites and to manage it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to set up various website hosting accounts and eventually resell them to others. Of course, you can also buy a VPS with no Control Panel and you'll get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so you can install just the software which you want for your apps.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

You'll be able to acquire CentOS with each and every dedicated server that we offer, as 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options which you're able to pick on the order page. CentOS is compatible with all three web hosting Control Panels which we supply, so that you are able to choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on your server. The first is suitable for less experienced users who require a powerful website hosting solution, because a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a single very large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will enable you to make a number of hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the web hosting space. If you want CentOS with no additional software, you can select a server setup without Control Panel at all. Then you can add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, which includes weekly CentOS updates.
